One Design Spring Series Results

One Design Racing


LAST SUNDAY the Melges 15 fleet and the Flying Scot fleet kicked off the One Design sailing season with Spring Series #1. 4 races were sailed in 4-8 knots from the west before the wind did an about face and we had a sea breeze in April.


In the 8-boat Flying Scot fleet it was Len and Barb Guenther who won 3 out of 4 races for the overall win. Hal Starke & Rick Peterson had mostly top 3 finishes to finish in 2nd by 1 point. 3rd was a tie between Rick & Sharon Bauer and Tracy Schwarzschild with the tiebreaker going to the Bauers. Phill Web won the 4th race and finished in 5th.
